foreign relations economy teet. menendez and melgin appeared last year for a media organization. the senate ethics committee received a complaint of a new jersey republican official who claims that menendez got rides on the private plane to a resort in the dominican republic and elsewhere without disclosing them. >> senator menendez accepted the flights, well, let's see, a flight to the dominican republic, there was a flight to puerto rico, a flight to washington, et cetera, from this doctor down in florida on his private jet which he had failed to report. >> reporter: in a statement, the senator called him a friend and political supporter for many years. and said he took three trips on that plane but paid for and reported them properly. but his chief of staff tells nbc news that the senator wrote a check a few weeks ago, two months after the ethics complaint was made to reimburse the doctor $58,000 for 2 trips in 2010. the senator's refers to a series of claims of conservative websites saying that he met with prostitutes while in the dominican republic. those allegations the menende

some wondering if the government is hurting the economy and keeping people from being enthusiastic or excited because of all the milestones with the debt ceiling and next up sequestration. >> i think that's exactly right. you see that for the gdp numbers, for example. fourth quarter gdp numbers down and in large part because of government spending. redust in the military spending because of the draw down in the war but government spending does help the economy. >> right. >> clear that's been the case looking, for example, at great britain. they're in the double-dip recession right now doing the same austerity measures republicans oppose and we have had 6.1 million new jobs added in this economy and i think that the problems are we have to invest in education, make sure people have opportunities and make sure that the government doesn't pull back right now. >> what we also know is there are republicans who still strongly say and assert that the stimulus did not work and they do not believe in exactly what you just said. >> economists, the majority of those interviewed by "wall street j

instead? how you can weigh in on the hot topic and the u.s. economy shrinks for the first time since the recession end. what does that mean? we will get the first read with our senior editor mark murray. >>> the white house is responding to the u.s. economy shrank in the fourth quarter. the first time since the recession ended. the white house cites hurricane sandy and sharp cuts and a short time ago, jay carney laid the blame from republicans. >> at least some of that has to do with the uncertainty created by the prospect. talk about letting the sequester kick in as though it were an acceptable thing. it belies where republicans were on the issue not that long ago. >> reaction from the post, mikes. consider yourself warned. we have seen battles turn into the credit rating and the economy shrinking for the first time since the recession and carney or the white house believes it's a part of this sequestration we are facing. >> it's important to look at the broad trinity economy over the past two years. for every step or two we see data showing a step backwards. that's the way to read

the land of opportunity. now's the time to do this so we can strengthen our economy. and strengthen our country's future. think about it. we define ourselves as a nation of immigrants. that's who we are in our bones. the promise we see in those who come here from every corner of the globe, that's always been one of our greatest strengths. it keeps our workforce young. it keeps our country on the cutting edge. and it's helped build the greatest economic engine the world has ever known. after all, immigrants help start businesses like google and yaho yahoo!. they created new industries that created new jobs and new prosperity for our citizens. in recent years, one in four high-tech start-ups in america were founded by immigrants. one in four new small business owners were immigrants including right here in nevada. folks who came here seeking opportunity and now want to share that opportunity with other americans. but we all know that today we have an immigration system that's out of date and badly broken. a system that's holding us back instead of helping us grow our economy and stren

energy not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in washington couldn't come together to eliminate a few special interest tax loopholes or government programs that we agree need some reform. >> our first read team notes that while republicans want to solely talk about the budget the white house does not want to be bogged down on one issue that in the past cost hem political capital. quote, the obama white house wants to overled wa's political circuits to see what it can get through congress without letting congress define what issues get addressed. joining us now kelly o'donnell. our first read team noted the p talking about guns, immigration and today addressing the issue of the sequester. >> reporter: well, there is that sprint in the first year of his second term to try to get as much done as possible. and urgency on all these issues for different reasons. and when it comes to the sequester, the automatic budget cuts, kind of an odd term for what's meant to be automatic sweeping cuts across the board for the departments with a fe
